Camilla Sten

A stunning political suspense debut by Camilla Sten!

Last night saw the much-anticipated release of Camilla Sten’s debut novel A New Dawn, a dystopian novel of a world not far from our own. Though young, Camilla has always been writing and it was no surprise to the people closest to her when she finally presented the world with a manuscript to her first novel. The book was promptly acquired by Ordfront förlag in Sweden for its suspenseful and stylish retelling of a Stockholm where people are judged not on their character but on their origin.

A New Dawn stars Isa who knows how to behave. She knows that you keep your head down and your mouth shut. And you NEVER draw attention to yourself. It might have been otherwise, once, but that doesn’t matter anymore. Isa is class B, and she is well aware of the rules.

At night, though, things are different. At night Isa and her friends wage a covert revolution. By hacking party blogs and spreading fliers with illegal anti-government propaganda they try to make their voices heard. Things suddenly come to an unexpected head when an anonymous blogger claims to have information that could overthrow the government. With the police hot on their heals Isa and her friends will have to decide, once and for all, how much they are willing to sacrifice for freedom.

Although Camilla likes to say that her novel accidentally ended up being about politics that is not quite true. A self-proclaimed feminist from a very young age politics and debate has always come easily to our author who also writes insightful articles on the current political climate for several different newspapers including Expressen and Aftonbladet.

We expect to see many great things from this talented writer.

Jessica Schiefauer received the August Prize 2015 for her novel THE EYES OF THE LAKE!

Motivation: One year. The year when Ester and Isak meet. The year when Isak’s brother, Anton, is lured into a world of hate, swastikas and violence. The year when a boy is murdered. Jessica Schiefauer’s novel explains how easy it is to be influenced, the desire to belong. But it is just as much a story about love, a love so immersive that it becomes destructive. The prose is poetic, condensed and flows like the water that becomes a spectator to the tragedy unfolding. It is a carefully polished prose – to document this horrific chain of events. 

Her previous novel THE BOYS (Pojkarna) also received the August Prize (2011) and Jessica Schiefauer is now among a small exclusive group of  authors (all categories) that have received the prize twice since the award was first given in 1989.

This summer Ester and Isaac fall madly in love. This summer their love will be tarnished, crumbled and resurrected. This summer a young boy is killed and Isaac’s brother was there when it happened.

Queen of suspense Viveca Sten is a triple threat this fall!

Last Wednesday saw the release of In Truth, Viveca Sten’s eighth crime novel in the internationally popular Sandhamn Murder Series. The book shot straight to number one and is currently one of the best selling novels in Sweden in three different formats.

Meanwhile the fifth season of the acclaimed series based on Viveca’s novels will run as a three parter on TV. To top it all off the author can be seen competing in Sweden’s most popular celebrity game show “På Spåret” at the end of the year.

The new novel takes place a week before Swedish midsummer. After being badly bullied a young child goes missing from sailing camp on a neighboring island to Sandhamn.

I wanted to explore every parents nightmare in this book. Sending your child away to camp believing that they’re in a safe environment and then finding out the opposite is true. That’s the worst thing imaginable, says Viveca Sten

There are eight novels in the Sandhamn Murder series now. Together they’ve sold more than 3 million copies and are published in over 25 countries the world over. This makes Viveca Sten one of Sweden’s most successful crime writers to date. The TV series based on her novel has over 35 million viewers all over the globe and success continues. Seeing the publication of her first novel in the US and UK was a smash. Viveca and Still Waters swiftly climbed to number one of the charts in both countries.

It seems like the readers really to Still Waters to heart, says Viveca Sten.

And of course they did. The Sandhamn Murder series are clever, suspenseful and filled with great characters that quickly become addictive. In Truth is no exception and it would be fair to say that this could actually be one of her best books yet.
